Camera Compatibility With Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock


I want to purchase the PL85413 kit with the camera bracket. The camera i have now is built into handle thru after market stereo. What camera will work with this kit/bracket and do you carry it? Thank You

It sounds like your existing camera is wired to the aftermarket stereo, and you want to make sure it will work in terms of both the camera's housing and wiring with the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock. I have confirmed that yes, it will work, as long as the camera can be removed from the existing handle. You should be able to do this, but it might take some care to do it properly.

Pop & Lock states that the # PL85413 is designed to work with all factory backup camera systems, and that they will work with any backup camera lens that is sized to fit in its slot, which most cameras are. I reached out to them and they confirmed that the slot should work well with the placement of your existing camera's lens. The power wiring for the camera is separate from the power wiring for the lock, and therefore won't cause a wiring compatibility issue.

Our installation video illustrates this as well, and while the Honda Ridgeline in the video has a different tailgate than your 2007 Toyota Tacoma, it does give a good general idea as to how it will work on your vehicle. Both vehicles have similar backup camera setups in the handles of the tailgate. I've linked the video for your reference, and this particular bit of information can be found at the 1:30 mark of the video.
